Tangy Tangerine Bubble Tea


Blogging the last few letters of the A -Z Β blogging challenge ! Whew !! and I am on the letter T. I thought I would blog about bubble tea and make a tangerine based bubble tea. When bubble tea hit the states a few years back it became a popular item in my family as well. My girls wanted to visit the mall just to get bubble tea πŸ™‚ ! I have not really made bubble tea at home, so tried it this weekend and judging by the Β enthusiasm with which it was received I foresee I will be making a lot of bubble tea in the future. It was fairly easy. Β I just cooked the tapioca pearls and then it’s a tea breeze ! I used the white tapioca pearls but traditionally you would use the bigger beads with a dark center. Instead of Β a syrup flavoring, I used natural fruit juice and some honey to sweeten. I also used green tea, but white tea or any herbal flavored tea should work as well. I make an extra milky version for my youngest ( see picture below) and a stronger one for the grown ups. I used coconut milk, but you can use almond milk or regular milk as well. You can mix and match with fruit flavors. I used tangerine because I had to use the letter T ! Be creative and make your own bubble tea πŸ™‚Β

  1. Nice ! Always wanted to learn how to make bubble tea & this looks super easy. Thanks for sharing ! Will prob use 100% juices I think. Maybe use regular milk too. I like the milky version !

  2. Love this ! Now I can quit taking my kids to the mall too where the tea is ridiculously expensive ! Bah ! Love the healthier option of using agave nectar ! Pic looks yummy too !

  3. I printed the recipe ! looks quite simple ! I like the idea of using green & white teas. Not sure what tea they use in the mall. Am ordering the black bubble tea pearls from amazon. Know any local stores that may have it ? I have a craving for the tea now !!! Pic is tempting !
